Products used by Bodhi Therapeutics
I care as much about what goes on your skin as I do mine. And I’m a firm believer that quality products make a difference in the overall experience of wellness. That’s why I use organic massage and aromatherapy products. Below you will find information about the products I use and you can always contact me with any questions you might have.
100% Unrefined, Raw, Organic Shae Butter +
This product is as simple as it gets. Shae and either almond or avocado oil. Two main ingredients, with a little organic essential oil, no fillers, no chemical processing and full of good-for-you components. I use this product alot because it is optimal for Deep Tissue work, providing just the right amount of glide without being too slippery so I can get into the deeper fascia with ease. It is a rich, emollient product so it does leave a nourishing coat of moisture on the skin. If you’d prefer something that soaks right up, you can always request the Organic Lotion. This product has a very light, nutty scent with the tiniest hint of various organic Floracopeia essential oils.
About Shae Butter: Rich in vitamins A, E and fatty acids, Unrefined Shea Butter is a renown moisturizer that reduces skin irritations, evens out skin tone and wrinkles, and is non-comedogenic, so can be safely used on delicate or acne-prone skin. Shea butter can be applied directly to the skin to nourish and moisturize, as well as reduce problems such as stretch marks, eczema, wrinkles, and sun damage. Use it in a variety of DIY skin care recipes to target more specific skin issues, or just to create fun whipped body butters for you and your loved ones. Shea Butter can also be used to tame frizzy and unruly hair: melt a small amount of shea butter in your hands, then scrunch in your hair to add body and shine. Read more about Shae Butter HERE.
Bon Vital Organica Lotion
After much trial and error in finding a non-greasy, quality lotion that would be sufficient for both Deep tissue and Swedish massage, I found this product. While it does have many more ingredients than the pure Shae Butter listed above, the quality of ingredients are high and about 75% organic. Unfortunately, in order to make a lotion, there needs to be some additional ingredients to make the texture lighter yet not runny so there will always be a compromise. However, this product is lovely. It absorbs right into the skin so there is no residue and it’s unscented so you dont leave smelling like a perfumery. But if you would like a scent, you can always request essential oils be added for aromatherapy pleasures! Read more about Bon Vital HERE.

Floracopeia Essential Oils
I am so excited to have found this company! I love to support local folks whenever possible and these guys are right down in the foothills of Grass Valley. Nearly all their oils are organic and all are sustainably grown and harvested. They have a wide variety of oils beyond your typical Lavender and Peppermint and I’m having fun creating new combinations in my own line of scents, Bodhi Aromas: Scents of Enlightenment.

Bodhi Aromas, Scents of Enlightenment
Of all our senses, I dont think I could pick a favorite but smell is pretty high on the list. Baking cookies, frying bacon, brewing coffee, the waft of honeysuckle on a summer breeze, the fresh clean, tang in the air after a hard rain, and the earthy, welcoming aroma of pine forest are some of my very favorite scents to revel in. So it makes scents (pun intended) that I wouldn’t be able to stay away from creating my own new favorites for long. With the combination of purified, fresh Tahoe water and the delicately extracted organic oils from Floracopeia, I’ve created a few of my own mind-altering delights for the nose. Bodhi translates as Enlightenment and so I call these treats “Scents of Enlightenment”. Inspire and Unwind are scents that will carry you right into the perfect moment, Mind, Body & Spirit.
